"The dinner you helped us with was an outstanding success. I was absolutely amazed at how much we raised, over $100,000. 92% of the gifts came from new donors."

Cathe Wiese

Matching Cash Grant

"The response to the Mission Increase matching grant has been enormous. We have raised over $33,000 in less than 3 months. We have never raised this kind of money."

Matt Burton
Extraordinary Young People

"The MI grant has helped us add needed staff, and has offered us excellent training. We now have increased name recognition and credibility in the local community. We have picked up dozens of new donors and we are seeing dramatic increases in our major donor work."

Training Success

"In the previous two years, we grossed approximately $12,000-$14,000…this year we followed the guidelines of Mission Increase-resulting in donation totaling over $37,000."

Robin Nelson-Zeller
Standing in the Gap

"The MI training continues to bless this ministry so much. Everything from help with donor management, newsletters, appeal letters, etc. has been so valuable."

Carol Willson
Legacy of Life

"This past year has been amazing for us. Our revenue increased 65%, from $370,000 to $610,000! With the support of Mission Increase, the increased publicity and growth we received for our tsunami relief work, and our partnership with Delta Ministries for our teams to India, God is truly blessing us to bless others in need in India. "

Brent Hample
India Partners

"Mission Increase has been a talented architect, a skilled carpenter and a wonderful blessing to our ministry. They not only provided the tools and the training to build bridges throughout the giving community—they continue to walk alongside us as we spread our vision for transforming young people’s lives."

Matt Burton
Extraordinary Young People

"There is no way we can quantify the value of the training and encouragement we have received through MIF. The hands-on training with Dave Farquhar and the principles taught in the Major Donor Seminar taught us the basic building blocks of how to cultivate relationships with and understand the hearts of major donors. The $114,448.00 raised during this grant period is merely the first effect of receiving this training. "

Excellence of Training

"The entire time was worthwhile with cutting edge, valuable and usable information. I know that when I attend an MIF training, my time is never wasted."

Julie Wilson
Family Life Service

"I had no idea the team-like atmosphere and support I would experience at a Mission Increase Workshop. Had I realize how easy it was to register and attend, as well as the benefit I received, I would have attended six months ago when I first began in Development with Skatechurch. Thank you for your support. I look forward to the next workshop!"

Sauna Winsor
Skatechurch

"I enjoyed the speaker's experience and anecdotes. The presentation material was succinct. Some seminars "give what's paid for." Your seminars give information to "help people do things with power." Makes a ministry effort worthwhile."

David Medina
New Life Beginnings

"MIF continues to provide revolutionary concepts on partnership that value the individual and the cause."

Transforming Ministries' Culture

"Five years ago, we were in survival mode. Now we are in offensive mode where we are able to take on the next step and move onto the next level. We’ve grown so much; we can’t keep track of everything."

Deb Tracy
Executive Director
Pregnancy Alternatives Center

"We really appreciate the seminars. They have been transformational to our thinking. Now we just need to catch up with it operationally."
